Washington State head coach Nick Rolovich added yet another coach to his staff on Monday with Andre Allen from Hawaii. Allen has spent the past two years as the wide receivers coach for the Rainbow Warriors and will take the same role with the Cougars
Prior to his time at Hawaii, Allen spent 26 years at the City College of San Francisco beginning as the wide receivers coach in 1991 until 1996. He then moved on to passing game coordinator and receivers coach until 2004 when he was named the offensive coordinator until 2017 when Rolovich added him to his staff.
If the City College of San Francisco sounds familiar, it should. The Cougars have recently landed big names from there with Anthony Gordon, Easop Winston, and Robert Valencia. All three of those players played under Allen during his tenure there.

Allen has proven that he can win as he won three Junior College National Championships at CCSF in 2007, 2011, and 2017 as well as eight Northern California Championships.
While at Hawaii in 2018, he coached current Seattle Seahawks receiver John Ursua who led the nation in receiving touchdowns with 16 on 89 receptions.
While nothing has been reported by the University, Allen has changed his bio on twitter to “WR Coach / Washington State University” to go along with a new profile picture of the Cougars logo.
He joins Brian Smith, Jake Dickert, Craig Stutzman, Mark Webber, John Richardson, AJ Cooper, Ricky Logo, Mark Banker, and Michael Ghoubrial as the new assistants. Check out our own Scott Cresswell’s breakdown of some of the new coaches as well as Mark Sandritter’s breakdown of Jake Dickert.
